Majestueux, délicieux, planche à partager à deux, équipe en feu, un jeu pour eux de nous satisfaire, pour aussi peu que 35$, Laurent, Marc-Antoine et Monsieur Dupuis, sont ceux qui réalisent tous nos voeux !

Food was fantastic. Better than most hotel meals. Views and service were also very good. (I was seated on balcony/verandah and ate while the sun was up to maximise the views.)

The low back chairs are really uncomfortable. Being told we have to be done eating within two hours to accommodate other reservations put a damper on the evening. Furthermore, it wasn’t necessary to apply a time restriction since the restaurant was half empty when we left. The view of the Dufferin Terrace is the highlight of this restaurant,

This was our second visit to le Sam Bistro this week. This time, we sat by the windows overlooking the St. Lawrence. The atmosphere was much quieter than our previous visit when we sat in the main part of the restaurant. We far preferred the quieter atmosphere by the windows. We ate the catch of the day: trout (may have been Steelhead trout), followed by the gourmet coffee with three desserts (trois mignardises). The meal and dessert rivalled the flavours of some meals we have eaten at five diamond restaurants in other locales across the country. Bravo, le Sam Bistro!

This is a delightful place for a meal. It was extremely busy the night we dined here, so consequently it was quite noisy. There is not much the restaurant can do about that, but it did make conversation a bit difficult. Nonetheless, we enjoyed a perfectly prepared lobster roll for dinner, followed by a gourmet coffee with "mignardises": several exquisitely prepared dessert bites. The service was friendly and attentive. All in all, a pleasant dining experience.

Table was a bit more cramped than we would have liked (Maybe because the couple next to us both sat on a shared bench with us meant for one of them). Otherwise a fantastic experience

One of our main courses was slightly burned. The manager not only replaced it and did not charge us for it, but took my course back and gave me a new one so we could eat our courses at the same time. He then presented us with a free wonderful appetizer. At the end of our dinner, having noticed my wife had a cold, without asking they gave her a cup of honeyed. Now that is excellent service!

Drinks and cheese board were wonderful. But Fish and Chips were terrible. Heavy, bread and certainly to worth the money. Crab cakes appetizer was a single crab cake and it was a cake to be sure but no crab. Great ambience, wonderful serviced but skip the food, enjoy a good drink and the view.

It took a long time for the food to be served to us. We did not have any drinks and I think that is why the service was so poor for us as every table who had drinks received better service . Plus we had a member of our dinner party in a wheelchair and the restaurant was not accommodating to him
